Leeds, Aug 1st-3rd 2014
Short Link: ow.ly/1ZKasH
This year Leeds hosts the 32nd UK BiCon! If you come to the group to meet more bisexuals, expecting to meet maybe 40-60 each time, then how much better is coming to meet a few hundred?!
(more venue details (via the BiCon site)). The workshops and talks start at ??am but the socialising goes on all day.
If you want to do the whole weekend then go ahead, you can get a full weekend ticket too at a discount (I think). There's always local accommodation you can book ahead via the organisers which is shared by many others, usually self-catering. That makes it easier to stay on site and get to know more people there, not worrying so much about late night travelling around and so on.
Tickets are between £10-£23(ish) for the day (or weekend tickets are available) depending on your income. You can also turn up and buy them on the door and they cover all events on the day (obviously not food/drinks though).
There are talks and events (eg. workshop sessions) going on throughout the whole weekend - examples from previous years are "Bi Literature", "Bis on Screen", "Saving Bi History", there's been a room for Hugs, talking about coming out or not, and space for your own open discussions or themes that come up on the day.
The evenings switch over to a party!

* From one of our members... "There's nothing like being immersed in community for a whole weekend"
* From the bicon site: "One year someone theorised that no matter what your hobby or interest is, there will be someone at BiCon into that too." (they couldn't disprove that after a few hours at the bar).
Useful links to read (you're asked to sign up to the code of conduct when you get your pass anyway, so read it now and save time later - if the link is kept the same as previous years):
